English Grammar: The 12 Tenses (Usage and Advanced Rules)
What you'll learn
- Understand the structure and form of all the English tenses.
- Know precisely when to use each tense and differentiate the subtle differences therein.
- Be able to express one's self more clearly.
- Improve overall English grammar abilities.
- No specific requirements are necessary. This course is recommended to intermediate / advanced students - but it is also a good challenge for beginners or pre-intermediate.
In this course, we learn the basic usage and advanced rules of the 12 English Tenses. This course is designed for intermediate or advanced English students, but if you are beginner or pre-intermediate, don't be shy. I believe that it is always a good idea to challenge yourself.
The structure of the course is as follows. For each tense I present a slideshow explaining the form, usage and rules. This will be presented in the form of a video. I will be in the video guiding you along. There will be a short quiz at the end of each video. You are encouraged to take notes and complete the many prompts which I give throughout each video.
This is useful because there is also a PDF of exercises following each video. This means that you can test your knowledge after having watched each video.
Why are tenses useful? I have been a professional English teacher for over five years and, in my experience, tense-related mistakes are the most common mistakes that I hear from my students. There are many reasons for this. One reason is that the English tense rules do not necessarily translate to your native language. It is helpful to try and understand the English tenses on their own terms.
I hope you find this course valuable. I made it for my students. During my lessons, students often ask me questions related to tense. In this course, all these questions (and more) will be answered. This course contains more than 2 hours of information. My private English lessons are usually half an hour or one hour in length. That means that for roughly the same price as one private English lesson, you can get over 2 hours of focused grammatical instruction.
I appreciate your time and I wish you good luck studying!
Who this course is for:
- This course is for English language students. They may be ESL speakers or native English speakers who nevertheless want to improve their understanding of tense.
Hey everyone, welcome to my profile. I've been a professional English teacher for more than five years and I am happy to be uploading my courses on Udemy. I was born in Canada, so I am a native English speaker. My teaching career has taken me around the world, to China and Indonesia, and back. Some of my hobbies include music, chess and books.
Taking my courses on Udemy is valuable because you get a lot of instruction for a small price. For example, for the price of one or two private English lessons, you can have access to two or three hours of focused couse content.
My philosophy is simple. I want to contribute something positive to the world and have an effect on people's lives. Through education, I believe, this is possible. I promise to give my full effort to these courses and I hope that they help you improve your English, and (hopefully) improve your life.
